138: Police - Michael Heath 1

From Michael Heath's long-running strip "The Gays" in "Private Eye". When I was first browsing through these strips I thought they were just casually put together examinations of the new cliches about modern gay life. It now looks as though many of them were inspired by current topical events and scandals. I suspect that if anyone cared to read through copies of "Gay news" from the same time they could pin-point dozens of allusions to particular accounts.
